We have all gotten used to just putting our dates on things we sign as the last 2 digits of the year. last year we simply used '19 on our dates.

But that may not be the best of ideas in the new decade.

With the dates now ending in '20, that opens up the possibility of fraud should someone decide to change the date.

Signing and dating documents as 1/2/20 could be fraudulently changed to another date such as 2017 or 2018, for example. Signing documents and dating them with the full year, 2020, will keep the documents you have signed from getting changed.

The last thing any of us needs is more problems, especially legal ones. Honestly, it's difficult enough remembering to change the date anyway come the New Year. We all have had to scratch off the old date to put the new one, but now it becomes even more important to not only remember we aren't in 2019 anymore but to use the full year of 2020.
